report for our continuing coverage of super tuesday elections. joining us is michael steel and former republican presidential candidate himself herman cain. now, i want to begin with my friend herman cain. >> hello, larry. sfoo hello, herman. supporting newt gingrich, which i totally respect, and i totally respect newt's issues, herman, and i totally respect you, but there is no electability. we're going to find that out after tonight. my big kwu to you, herman cain, is when you regroup, what are you looking for for issues and who will you support in the next round? >> the next round, larry, isn't going to come early. it's going to come a lot later than most people realize, and i beg to differ with you. i think newt is electable, and here's why. i have spent the last several days as well as a week ago actually on the ground talking to people campaigning with newt, campaigning with his daughter, and sometimes giving speeches, and there's a different level of enthusiasm that's growing for newt that i don't think is being captured in some of the polls. for example, he has already been de
of the candidates and all i have to say is, i love you back. thank you. >> michael steele, these have become pivot points for the candidates. we saw that with rick santorum. we saw it with mitt romney. >> let me ask you a question. i'd love to get the students' feedback on this. how did you feel in listening to those two sound bites. which one actually made you move toward that candidate if not physically, at least a little bit emotionally? and that's the rub right there for mitt romney. who gave, i thought, a very -- what's the word. sort of clean. it was like going to the doctor's office. it was everything -- it was sanitized. rick santorum was like you could -- that moment when he says i love you back. you could almost feel, thank you. yeah, i love you, too, man. it was a very different kind of connection. and that's been the undertone that's been driving a lot of the angst for the base is that i'll go fight for you, but i really want to go fight for you. i just don't want to fight for you because you have the moniker of gop nominee on your head. and so the broader public picks up on these thin
needs to channel the one line zingers of a michael steele who is joining us now from washington. seriously, michael steele, what is going on with mitt rop any, will he come out as a better version of the ipad? >> i don't know, it's been six years in the making of this thing, i don't know. the problem is, look, this is the guy, this is who he is. so, instead of trying to package him into ronald reagan or to bill clinton or some other, you know, bigger than life political figure, let him be himself, so he may be a little uncomfortable standing on the stage. build around that. make that part of the theme about him so people feel comfortable with that instead of judging him against other candidates or likely can dade d like a chris christie, make the argument for your candidacy, but most importantly for your future administration, because that is what everyone, including the base is looking to hear. that is what will move them toward you. so, until you -- until they get comfortable with mitt romney, his team around him and stop worrying about the gaffes and the foot in mouth disease
't be called tonight in ohio. former chairman of the republican party michael steele, and you have been a booster for the long drawn out primary campaign and does that apply to long drawn out primary nights like th like this? do you lick your chops and see this type of night for the republicans? >> i do. actually, i do. because it is part of the american story and we complain about people when they don't get en ga engage and you wonder why and when you create an avenue for them to express themselves and make a choice, we should celebrate that, and i do. yeah, i mean, do you want to be up at 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning and doing politics? some of us do, but most of us don't, but the point is that the people of ohio like we have seen in idaho and georgia and elsewhere tonight had a chance to get out and to save, hey, this is who we want. think about it this way, rachel, you know, under the old system this contest given all of the other, you know, pieces to it could have been over at the beginning of february. when you go through the iowa caucuses and that process and romney comes out and

democrats. michael steel is a political analyst. and joan walsh is an msnbc analyst. let's start on the reaction. it seems we know that most voters are women. we keep forgetting that. obviously, there's more men out there talking all the time. that's just a fact of life. they are out there talking. and women, of course, just quietly vote. and they make -- i don't think they are single issue voters, but they have concerns that men don't have. they are more concerned with health care, social security, medicare. they take care of older parents and worry about themselves. there's like one guy in the old folks home. he has big ears and he's very funny. but there's a lot of women there. men say with any luck, i won't need social security. but joan, on the issue of these issues like contraception and birth control and abortion rights, they do ring -- here's my suggestion. it's about the question, does this candidate care about people like me? the fundamental political question. >> right. but men are asking this question too because i think the thing that rush limbaugh did is make a lot
thing. they are no more thoughtful than the rest of us let's ask an actual gatekeeper. michael steele joins us from washington as chairman of the republican national committee, he oversaw the changes and the rules of this year's delegation. >> call me crazy. how are you doing? >> i would never call you crazy. >> crazy like a fox, crazy like a fox. >> that's -- that's -- you can now make the case. have you the opportunity to make that case. here's what i would like you to describe to us. there were rule changes that were created in november, 2008. >> my understanding was that there was a feeling that -- on the republican side that john mccain sewed up the nomination too quickly. and actually the long contested primary on the democratic side which at the time everyone was worried about was actually the party's benefit and rules were changed with an eye towards moving the contest in that direction. is that the case? >> you just summed it up perfectly. exactly the analysis that came out of the 2008 primary. by this time in 2008, our nominee was decided and it was john mccain and for the n
's the leader of the republican party. remember a couple years ago michael steele, the head of the dnc when he criticized rush limbaugh had to go on limbaugh's show and apologize for daring to criticize him. rnc. [laughter] thank you. so anyways, i think it is up to us to speak out an answer back to rebut the lies, refused the lives and i love doing it for three hours every morning on the radio and pretty soon on television. >> everyone is entitled to their own opinion. >> i don't know about that. >> i personally look at the gop and right-wing behavior as treasonous because there's selling out our plan and possibly our civilization. dessert air country and i look at -- i think that, you know, their fathers, mothers, grandparents and they're basically selling out their children as to what i want to know is when the cameras aren't on in the press room at the white house or wherever you might hang out with the media, does this ever come out with people that deal with it on an emotional level when they are really angry at the gop for what they are doing to what they're going to leave their childre
will hear from michael steele. >> we are joined by students from fairfax, va., and the washington center here in washington, d.c., and joining us is michael steele, the former chairman of the committee. great to have you with us. there are a couple of story lines that could come out. what are they? >> there are more than a couple. you have the mitt romney it which is winning big in places like ohio and winning one of the southern states to release solidify the argument he is a player to go -- to solidify the argument he is the player. the base has begun to gel around winning in the south for example, so he has a great opportunity to bring closure to the process of throwing of someone like rick santorum, his story line is going to be, -- to the process. for someone like rick santorum, his story line is going to be continuing the story line, winning ohio, which he -- if he does the resets of thing. the base will have an opportunity to say, maybe we should look closer of someone like santorum going forward. and you have georgia and the newt gingrich story line, witches region which is makin
and the statue of lenin and stalin? >> michael steele is only one man. he fought the good fight, but there's only so much he can do. >> holy cow. you know, we usually have the democratic hour of power here. but seriously, last week was a week with carl marks. even barnacle went way off the cliff. >> he was wearing a nike pullover track suit on friday, so he completely mailed it in by thursday afternoon. >> oh, i hear you guys were so unkind to mike barnicle, i even felt sorry for him. >>> coming up, we're going to be talking to presidential candidate rick santorum. >>> also, congressman elijah cummings. >>> and later, we'll have willem dafoe stopping by. very exciting. >>> also, mika jets in from the south of france. but first, here's bill cairns with a check on the forecast. bill, i just -- i don't know what to say about this weather except you've got to love global warming. i hope it sticks around for a couple of months. >> yeah, i know. don't go buying any snow blowers anytime soon. it's just incredible. international falls, minnesota, one of the coldest places there is, was 80 degrees this we
are the first three we will hear from. bring in the former chairman of the republican party, michael steel. nice to see you, mr. chairman. >> hey, rachel, what's up? >> i saw you mixing it up with joan walsh about the politics of the rush limbaugh comments about sandra fluke, the nature of his apology, mitt romney's inability to say woe do anything other than use different language there you seem to think this is sometime a real fight about contraception that's worth having between the parties. do you think that this is what republicans and democrats ought to be fighting for, putting republicans in a good stead heading to november? >> no, i don't. that is exactly the point. i think all of this could have been nipped in the bud early, early on for the leadership of the party, particularly those candidates running for president, to -- you know, without hesitation just rebuke the profanity of the comments. to make it clear this is not a reflection of who we are as conservatives what we stand for as a broadly based republican party and i thought again, one of those missed opportunity for the leaders
:00 eastern tonight. here tonight, director howard feinman. and michael steele. both msnbc political analysts. and malika henderson. we've got brand new exit poll information out of illinois and the illinois primary voters. we asked which candidate would most likely beat barack obama? not surprisingly, nearly all of romney voters, 93%, said they thought their guy was most electable. but 28% of santorum voters said they saw him beating obama. howard, speak of sports, that means people would rather vote for the guy, at least in some locations, they deeply believe in rather than the guy in november. >> i think some of those people buy santorum's argument, that you have to solidify the base, and if the base isn't really excited, isn't ready to walk through walls, then that's a weak position to be in against the president. >> tweedledum and tweedledee argument. does it work? they're too close in the end to president and the moderate republican, former governor of massachusetts? in the end their too close to excite the public? >> i think there's some truth to that. i know that's a fear for a lot of
. >> michael steel, a happy, happy man. i think he's the only one who is happy. no, haley barbour was saying this is not the worst thing in the world to have a contesting convention. he said, i don't think anyone in require thought rind -- right mind has thought this is good. >> maybe if he had never run before. but he's been out there, you don't need to learn fen who he is and allow for the mistakes. >> i think mitt romney is not the greatest can dat in the world. he's got skills as a businessman and other skills but i think being a political candidate is not necessarily he highest among them. some people get better after time, i don't think he does. >> it's like a programming note behind the scenes, there are certain operatives, certain officials when they say something, you really do have to listen. i put haley barbour in that category, put karl rove in that category, ed gillespie, who ran the reform n.c. an ran the bush white house for a while. they know so many people and are in constant contact with people across the country, it's tons of expertise, a mirror of what happened throughout
at "washington post" national political correspondent, dance all over but rnc chairman, michael steele. >> that began with a simple point. you've been writing about tomorrow being a pivotal point. how so quiet >> i think the importance of super tuesday this this year is that we will really care for the first time an indication of aa, how long this fight actually one. we know will go on for sometime, but the question is how long? and the question is, would there be any candidate who's been challenging governor romney who comes out of super day with a realistic chance of winning the nomination? we've had ups and downs, different people rising and falling. romney has been kind of a savvy competitor, the person to be. but after tomorrow we're going to have a better sense of the totality of this phrase in the degree to which governor romney has the advantage of the rest of the field. >> dan, we've been touching on a number of issues with the student including the money, organization, infrastructure, what is the worst possible case for it to marinate for someone like a mitt romney? can he ge
with us. >> michael steele. pew research says 3 in 10 republicans say their opinion has worsened since the primary began. >> he knew it was a man of steel. maybe he wasn't buried at sea. there's a report that the government might be keeping a big secret about that guy, usama bin laden, his body actually came to america? we'll tell you about that. >> then the president has seen a spike in female support. are republicans doing something wrong? can they win back that vote before the november election? that debate with those two ladies coming up. forty years ago, he wasn't looking for financial advice. back then, he had something more important to do. he wasn't focused on his future but fortunately, somebody else was. at usaa we provide retirement planning for our military, veterans and their families. now more than ever, it's important to get financial advice from people who share your military values. call now for our free guide and tips on planning for your retirement this tax season. if you have painful, swollen joints, i've been in your shoes. one day i'm on top of the world... the n
back machine, at one point, hyman roth told michael corelone the combined enterprise had surpassed u.s. steel, back then that was a big deal. these days u.s. steel is a $4 billion company versus apple's $545 billion. at the time we had two leaders of relatively dubious note. chevron's on the eve of the epic run and total collapse in oil, almost $100. and alcoa, holy cow, alcoa $40 then. that was just when china decided to flood the world with aluminum and just when the cost of making the stuff spiked, collapse in profit margins, collapse in stock. in other words, the last time we were at these levels, the dow was being led not by the u.s., but chinese growth. now the dow has a whole new crop of leaders. jpmorgan, arguably the premiere banking institution on earth. >> buy, buy, buy! >> ibm, a spectacularly well run international consulting company tremendous intellectual capital, caterpillar, which may be levered to china, may have an ace in the hole with the u.s. market given that the last time the average was twice as much business in this country as it's doing now. it's the subtext
